The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project will open its first official forum, on the Inkscape website, this August (2019). (Address/link will be provided at that time.) When that happens, new registrations will no longer be allowed in this forum and Inkscape support will be provided in the new forum. This forum will still be open for a while, so that existing topics can be finished, and existing users can have access to their contents. But all potential new members should register on the Inkscape website, and post their questions in the new forum, starting in August. If you have any questions or comments, you can post them here.

Since there haven't been any new messages for so long, and no one has ever replied to this message of mine I'm considering closing this forum entirely, in approx 6 months. If anyone has any comments about that, please feel free to post them.

A request please. I know this is probably easy and already posted. I want to make some tiny Forget-me nots or similar from scratch. I know I can trace one but want to learn how to do it. Can anyone point me in the right direction.Thank you.

Good Morning,

Carolyn has a video on how to draw teardrops or hearts that can be made to look like petals.  It's here on the forum in tutorials.

Also very simple designs has a really nice video for a more complex flower, no voice but good onscreen instructions.
http://verysimpledesigns.com/vectors/in ... esign.html

Once you've designed your petal use one of the create tiled clones using  ROTATE video's.  Carolyn has one of them too, as do I.  Both posted in tutorials/intermediate.  For only 5 petals I'd just use a simple object/transform/rotate instead of tiled  clones.

Good luck and hope to see the "forgetmenots" soon.

]I found Carolines Tute on my other drive. Couldn't fiond it here. It is the one where you move the centre point and rotate objects around it. This is my attempt. I did the flower and the scallop and joined and then duplicated around the centre point. Took a bit of fiddling with the position of the centre point to get it to work. I would welcome an easier way to do it. It is taken from a card I saw.
